GT Advanced Technologies Inc. ("GT") and its affiliated debtors as debtors in possession
in the above-captioned cases (collectively, "GTAT" or the "Debtors") hereby submit this motion
(the "Motion"), pursuant to sections 105(a) and 363(b) of title 11 of the United States Code (the
"Bankruptcy Code"), for entry of an order, substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A,

Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 1 of 13
sustainable. Therefore, after a careful evaluation of all alternatives, and in consultation with its
advisors, GTAT has determined that in order to preserve the value of its estates it must wind
down its sapphire manufacturing operations in Mesa, Arizona, and Salem, Massachusetts, with
reductions in associated supporting personnel at GTAT's Merrimack, New Hampshire, offices.
Concurrently with the filing of this Motion, GTAT has also filed a separate motion seeking to
reject a series of Apple agreements related to these operations that will no longer be required.
Unfortunately, the wind down of the sapphire manufacturing operations also means the loss of
approximately 890 jobs.2 However, only if GTAT winds down these operations will it be able to
stop its mounting losses and re-focus its resources on the operation of its core business of selling
sapphire furnaces and other products.
2 . As detailed in this Motion, GTAT has developed a wind down process (the "Wind
Down Process") that will allow for an orderly wind down by December 31, 2 014. In addition,
through this Motion, GTAT seeks authority to establish a modest incentive plan (the "Incentive
Plan") to compensate certain employees that GTAT determines, in its sole discretion, should
remain in its employ to implement the Wind Down Process.
3. For the avoidance of doubt, GTAT is not seeking, at this time, Court authorization
to sell any of its equipment at these facilities outside the ordinary course of business.
JURISDICTION, VENUE AND STATUTORY BASIS
4. The Court has jurisdiction over this matter pursuant to 2 8 U.S.C. §§ 157 and
1334. This matter is a core proceeding within the meaning of 2 8 U.S.C. § 157(b)(2 ). Venue is
proper pursuant to 2 8 U.S.C. §§ 1408 and 1409.
This number does not include the approximately 550 temporary workers at the Mesa facility who are employed
by a temporary staffing agency. This Motion does not cover any of these temporary workers.

Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 2 of 13
5.  The statutory bases for the relief requested herein are sections 105(a) and 363 of
the Bankruptcy Code.
BACKGROUND
6. On October 6, 2014 (the "Petition Date"), GTAT commenced voluntary cases
under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District
of New Hampshire (the "Court"). GTAT continues to operate its businesses and manage its
properties as debtors in possession pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy
Code. No request for the appointment of a trustee or examiner has been made in these chapter
11 cases and no committees have been appointed or designated.
7. GTAT has requested that these chapter 11 cases be consolidated for procedural
purposes only and jointly administered pursuant to Rule 1015(b) of the Federal Rules of
Bankruptcy Procedure (the "Bankruptcy Rules").
8. Information regarding GTAT's business, capital structure, and the circumstances
leading to these chapter 11 cases is set forth in the Declaration of Daniel W. Squiller in Support
of the Chapter 11 Petitions and First-Day Motions [Docket No. 14] (the "Supplemental First
Day Declaration") and the Supplemental Declaration of Daniel W. Squiller in Support of the
Chapter 11 Petitions and First-Day Motions (the "Supplemental First Day Declaration"), which
are incorporated herein by reference.
GTAT's Business
9. GTAT and its non-Debtor affiliates (collectively, the "GTAT Group") are leading
manufacturers and suppliers of advanced materials and equipment for the global consumer
electronics, power electronics, solar, and LED industries. The GTAT Group designs and sells
high-quality sapphire production equipment and materials for a wide variety of domestic and
international markets, including the consumer electronics market. In addition, the GTAT
3
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 3 of 13
Group's historical business is based in the solar industry, where it is a leading provider of key
polysilicon and photovoltaic equipment, services, and technologies. The GTAT Group is also in
the process of developing and commercializing additional equipment and products, including an
ion implantation equipment tool and advanced solar metallization and interconnect technology.
As of the Petition Date, the GTAT Group employed approximately 1,100 full-time employees in
the United States and abroad, approximately 1,000 of whom work for the Debtors. The stock of
GT is publicly traded under the symbol "GTAT".
10. As of June 28, 2014, the GTAT Group's unaudited and consolidated financial
statements reflected assets totaling approximately $1.5 billion and liabilities totaling
approximately $1.3 billion.
RELIEF REQUESTED
11. By this Motion, GTAT requests entry of an order, substantially in the form
attached hereto as Exhibit A, (i) authorizing GTAT to implement the Wind Down Process at the
sapphire manufacturing facilities in Mesa, Arizona, and Salem, Massachusetts, with reductions
in associated supporting personnel at GTAT's Merrimack, New Hampshire, offices and (ii)
approving the Incentive Plan for those employees that GTAT determines, in its sole discretion,
should remain in its employ for the implementation of the Wind Down Process.

Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 4 of 13
Process of Winding Down Operations at Mesa Facility and Salem Facility
12. For the reasons set forth in the Supplemental First Day Declaration, GTAT must
wind down its sapphire operations at the Mesa facility and the Salem facility as soon as possible.
This drastic step is necessitated by GTAT's liquidity crisis and the ongoing cash burn from its
operations at these locations. Under these circumstances, it is GTAT's business judgment that a
wind down of these operations represents the best possible avenue to preserve GTAT's business
in the long run.
13. However, merely "pulling the plug" is not a viable option given the significant
value of GTAT's equipment at these facilities (most notably, the sapphire growing furnaces) as
well as the significant value of the sapphire boules that are currently being grown in the furnaces
(a process that can take up to 30 days). For these reasons, GTAT has developed the Wind Down
Process, which will allow GTAT to wind down its sapphire manufacturing operations in as
orderly a manner as possible while preserving the value of its assets. Specifically, the Wind
Down Process consists of the following steps.
14. First, a crew of approximately 75 employees will continue to monitor the sapphire
growth currently in progress, remove the sapphire boules from the furnaces (when ready), and
then prepare the boules for sale (which requires cleaning and further processing). These tasks
are critical. Simply shutting down the furnaces would interrupt the sapphire growth process mid-
stream, resulting in the loss of the entire boule (which, if fully grown, has a market value in
excess of $20,000). GTAT expects that this process will be completed within 30 days of this
Court's approval of this Motion and GTAT's motion to reject the Apple agreements. Thus,
GTAT expects that this phase can be completed by mid-November 2014.
5
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 5 of 13
15. Second, once the sapphire boules have been removed from the furnaces, the
furnaces must be decommissioned and put into "hibernation." This process requires cleaning the
furnaces and initiating a quiescent vacuum mode of operation to prevent contamination and
corrosion of critical components. In addition to the furnaces, GTAT's other equipment,
including the equipment to fabricate the sapphire boules, must also be cleaned and sealed.
Absent this decommissioning, this equipment would lose significant value and could, moreover,
become damaged during transport (if any). GTAT anticipates that this second step will require
approximately 15 employees.
16. Third, GTAT must shut down and clean up the Mesa facility, including the
various supply systems for process cooling water, compressed air, helium, coolant, and power to
the furnaces. In addition, all raw material, work in process, finished goods, and other assets must
be inventoried, put in storage, and secured. GTAT anticipates that these tasks will require
approximately 35 employees. GTAT estimates that steps two and three should be completed by
December 31, 2014.
Wind Down Employees
17. Retaining qualified personnel will be critical to successfully implementing the
Wind Down Process. Without the know-how and experience of these employees, the Wind
Down Process would be chaotic and much value would be lost to the detriment of these estates.
Accordingly, GTAT seeks the approval of the Incentive Plan to compensate employees who
GTAT determines, in its sole direction, should remain in the employ with GTAT for the
implementation of the Wind Down Process.
BASIS FOR RELIEF REQUESTED
18. Pursuant to this Motion, GTAT seeks authority to implement the Wind Down
Process at the Mesa Facility and the Salem Facility, with reductions in associated supporting
6
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 6 of 13
personnel at GTAT's Merrimack, New Hampshire, offices, and take all actions necessary or
appropriate in furtherance thereof.
19. Section 363(b) of the Bankruptcy Code provides that a debtor "after notice and a
hearing, may use, sell, or lease, other than in the ordinary course of business, property of the
estate." 11 U.S.C. § 363(b)(1). In general, a debtor may use property of the estate outside the
ordinary course of its business where the use of such property represents an exercise of the
debtor's sound business judgment.3 Further, "a debtor's business decision should be approved
by the court unless it is shown to be so manifestly unreasonable that it could not be based upon
sound business judgment, but only on bad faith, or whim or caprice."4 In addition, section
105(a) of the Bankruptcy Code confers upon the Court broad equitable powers to fashion relief
in accordance with the policies underlying the Bankruptcy Code.
20. For the reasons described in this Motion, GTAT believes in its business judgment
that a sound business purpose exists to wind down its operations at the Mesa Facility and the
Salem Facility, with reductions in associated supporting personnel at GTAT's Merrimack, New
Hampshire, and to implement the Wind Down Process to preserve and maximize the value of its
assets for the benefit of all its stakeholders. Indeed, given the current state of GTAT's
operations, cash resources, and projected cash burn, winding down these operations represents
the best possible avenue to allow GTAT to re-focus its resources on the operation of its core
business of selling sapphire furnaces and other products.

Request for Approval of Incentive Plan
21. GTAT also requests authority to implement the Incentive Plan. The Incentive
Plan is designed to ensure that GTAT can wind down its operations properly, prudently, and as
efficiently as possible by encouraging individuals to complete specified wind down tasks.
GTAT believes that the Incentive Plan is critical to the Wind Down Process. It would be
significantly more expensive for GTAT to recruit, hire, and train new employees than to provide
a modest incentive to existing employees that will encourage them to continue to work for
GTAT during the Wind Down Process.
22. The proposed Incentive Plan will apply to those employees who GTAT
determines, in its sole discretion, are required to implement the Wind Down Process. The
proposed Incentive Plan includes the following terms and conditions:
• An employee covered by the Incentive Plan (a "Covered Employee") will
be notified of the length of time that such Covered Employee will be
asked to stay in the employ of GTAT after the commencement of the
Wind Down Process to complete his or her assigned tasks (the "Task
Length").
• Covered Employees will continue to be paid for actual time worked at
their current base salary rate as of the time that the Task Length is
communicated to them plus benefits.
• All GTAT employment policies will remain in place with respect to
Covered Employees.
• Upon the earlier of the completion of a Covered Employee's task or the
expiration of his or her Task Length, each such employee will be paid a
bonus (a "Completion Bonus") up to 15 per cent of the aggregate amount
of base salary for the assigned Task Length.
• Completion Bonuses will not be pro-rated, except in the case of death or
disability. If GTAT releases a Covered Employee for other than cause
prior to the end of his or her assigned Task Length, the Completion Bonus
will be paid in full. If the Covered Employee voluntarily terminates his or
her employment or is discharged for cause prior to the end of the assigned
Task Length, no Completion Bonus will be paid.
8
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 8 of 13
• The Completion Bonus will be credited against any WARN Act notice
pay' or similar claims.
• Covered Employees must release GTAT from any and all claims arising
out of or in connection with their employment with GTAT.
 
23.  To the extent practicable, GTAT will attempt to use the funds it must pay to
employees under the WARN Act as incentive for Covered Employees to remain in the
company's employ without payment of a Completion Bonus.
 
24.  The expected Task Lengths for the Incentive Plan, and the anticipated number of
employees and costs for each category (including payroll taxes, are as follows:
Task Length Estimated Number of
Employees Under Incentive
Program
Estimated Aggregate
Completion Bonus
Furnace Monitoring through
Completion of Growth: 4 weeks
3 $14,100
Furnace and Fabrication
Equipment Shutdown: 4 weeks
4 $13,100
Facility Systems Shutdown &
Securing Inventory: 6 weeks
6 $36,500
Total 13 $64,700
25.  GTAT reserves the right to modify the Incentive Plan as needed, but consistent
with the terms described above, and request that the estates be authorized to pay total
compensation under the Incentive Plan of up to $64,700.
5
 
Under the Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988, as amended (the "WARN Act"),
in the event of a "mass layoff," the employer must, among other things, pay wages to employees subject to
layoff. 29 U.S.C. § 2102, et seq.
9
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 9 of 13
26. The compensation to be provided under the Incentive Plan has been developed by
GTAT in its business judgment based upon GTAT's planning efforts. The Incentive Plan is
designed to assure that employees are incentivized to complete the important task of properly
winding down GTAT's operations at the Mesa facility and the Salem facility.
27. By this Motion, GTAT requests, pursuant to section 363(b) of the Bankruptcy
Code, that the estates be authorized to implement the Incentive Plan. As noted above, section
363(b) of the Bankruptcy Code permits a debtor to use property of the estate outside of the
ordinary course of its business where the use of such property represents an exercise of the
debtor's sound business judgment.6 GTAT believes that the implementation of the Incentive
Plan is justified under these circumstances, will accomplish a sound business purpose and will
assist in the effective and efficient wind down of GTAT's sapphire manufacturing operations at
their Mesa Facility and Salem Facility. Based on their evaluation of available alternatives, the
Debtors have determined that the measures proposed in this Motion are necessary to achieve, and
will achieve, their intended purpose of properly winding down such operations.
28. GTAT submits that the Incentive Plan does not conflict with section 503(c)(1) of
the Bankruptcy Code. Section 503(c)(I) only applies to payments that are meant to induce
insiders to remain with the debtor's business. 11 U.S.C. § 503(c)(l). The term "insider" is
defined in section 101(31) of the Bankruptcy Code to include a "(i) director of the debtor; (ii)
officer of the debtor; (iii) person in control of the debtor; (iv) partnership in which the debtor is a
general partner; (v) general partner of the debtor; or (vi) relative of a general partner, director,
6
 
See, e.g., In re Martin, 91 F.3d at 395.
10
Case: 14-11916-HJB Doc #: 97 Filed: 10/10/14 Desc: Main Document Page 10 of 13
officer, or person in control of the debtor."' None of the Covered Employees fall within any of
these categories.
29. As described herein, the Wind Down Process and the Incentive Plan are supported
by sound business justifications and should be approved by the Court. GTAT submits that the
relief requested in the Motion represents the best possible outcome for GTAT under the
circumstances.
THE REQUIREMENTS OF BANKRUPTCY RULE 6003 ARE SATISFIED
30. Bankruptcy Rule 6003 empowers a court to grant relief within the first 21 days
after the Petition Date "to the extent that relief is necessary to avoid immediate and irreparable
harm." The facts described herein demonstrate that the relief requested in this Motion is
necessary to avoid immediate and irreparable harm to GTAT's business operations and the value
of GTAT's estates, and thus Bankruptcy Rule 6003 has been satisfied to permit such payments.
WAIVER OF BANKRUPTCY RULES 6004(a) AND (h)
31. To implement the foregoing successfully, GTAT seeks a waiver of the notice
requirements under Bankruptcy Rule 6004(a) and the 14-day stay of an order authorizing the use,
sale, or lease of property under Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h).

32. Notice of this Motion has been provided by email, facsimile or overnight courier

District of New Hampshire ("LBR") that any motion filed shall have an accompanying

under these circumstances.
